Screen brightness: fix it if it is too low

First, screen brightness is not a complicated configuration of the Windows 10 operating system When it works correctly. If your screen does not look good, that is, it is too dark. Even with the brightness set to maximum, you may need to calibrate your screen again, among other things. Similarly, you can try some things so you can fix the screen brightness.

How to fix screen brightness

Before proceeding with any correction, make sure the problem is on the screen and not in what you are seeing. You must open some different images or play some different multimedia files. Also, be sure to include live action and animated content so you are not only playing content in low light. (Like that episode of Game of Thrones).

Now, if all the media and everything you've played are too dark. Then you must try these solutions that we will present:

Verify third party applications

They may interfere with the brightness, or may not work properly. What makes the screen look darker. Also, check if something could have added an overlay to your screen.

Check Night Light or F.lux

First, Night Light is a feature of Windows 10 that adds an orange hue to the screen. So check if you may have activated it. If you prefer to use F.lux over the native function, verify its configuration. This does more than dye the screen orange. Disable it and see if this solves the problem.

Nor can we tell you where to look in the BIOS. What you have to do is access the BIOS and look for the brightness settings. If you find the brightness setting, then you should make sure it is not too low.
